Our B12 training course will provide delegates with an understanding of B12 deficiency and pernicious anaemia and the skills required to give B12 injections.
A certificate of completion will be awarded to candidates on successful completion of this B12 injection course. Following this, delegates will then be able to work towards competence under supervision and deliver B12 injections in their own place of work. All delegates will leave the course with a B12 Injections Patient Specific Direction Protocol and a Competency Based Framework to continue working with their practice mentor to aid competency development.
